AboitizLand and Point Blue Address Temporary Housing Needs of Workers in the midst of COVID-19 Quarantine
During this unprecedented time when all measures have been heightened to curb the spread of COVID-19, people have to strictly follow guidelines including home quarantine, suspended mass transportation services, as well as restricted land, air, and sea travel.
While food and essential health services are being regulated, the presence of uniformed personnel has also been increased to enforce social distancing procedures.
With waived minimum lease requirement, Point Blue offers safe lodging near key business districts
While most people have the relative luxury many companies have shifted to remote work, of working from home, our healthcare professionals and workers from essential industries face mobility challenges as a result of community quarantines and transport limitations. Extending support for highly affected workers, the microstudio rental apartments operated by AboitizLand with Point Blue reduced the required three-month minimum term for all units to one month lease. This is to offer safer alternative housing for people who suffer long work commutes while helping industries such as business process outsourcing companies.
This policy has taken effect since March 16 and will remain active for as long as the ECQ is in effect in Metro Manila. This allows new and existing tenants to reside in a secure and fully-furnished accommodation in key locations specifically in Makati and Bonifacio Global City. This arrangement is applicable whether units are occupied by one or two persons.
Through this effort, AboitizLand together with its partner Point Blue, hopes to alleviate the lockdown woes of those who tirelessly work and serve, and for businesses to continue operating during this challenging situation.

Last Sunday at 8, we turned on our TV screen to the live streaming of the Metropolitan Cathedral to hear the holy mass officiated by Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma to consecrate Cebu to Our Lady of Guadalupe in a consecration read by Cebu Gov. Gwen Garcia before the very statue of our Lady of Guadalupe and the prayer that Gov. Gwen recited for this consecration was so emotional that the Governor was in near tears. What a beautiful prayer that hopefully would protect Cebu from this global virus.
The Philippines is home to five out of seven species of sea turtles or pawikan that can be found in the world. Sea turtles play an important role in keeping the oceans healthy by nourishing seagrass beds and coral reefs. However, as human activity increases, sea turtle populations have become endangered.
